Spanish moss clings to the stately oak trees surrounding this restored 1880s mansion, now a comfortable B&B in the town of Micanopy, 11 miles north of Gainesville. The imposing Greek Revival–style B&B has Corinthian columns and wide verandas perfect for relaxing in a rocker. Rooms and suites have period furniture, Oriental rugs, leaded-glass windows, and claw-foot tubs; some rooms have whirlpools. A multicourse breakfast, which is included in the rate, is an
event here. Emphasis is on personal attention without intrusion; guests appreciate the service without feeling rushed.
